DESIRE Poem about Desire

The expense of spirit in a waste of shame
Is lust in action; and till action, lust
Is perjured, murderous, bloody, full of blame,
Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust,
Enjoy'd no sooner but despised straight,
Past reason hunted, and no sooner had
Past reason hated, as a swallow'd bait
On purpose laid to make the taker mad;
Mad in pursuit and in possession so;
Had, having, and in quest to have, extreme;
A bliss in proof, and proved, a very woe;
Before, a joy proposed; behind, a dream.
All this the world well knows; yet none knows well
to shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.

Shakespeare
Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove,
Of golden sand, and crystal brooks,
With silken lines and silver hooks.There will the river whispering run,
Warmed by thy eyes more than the sun.
And there the enamoured fish will stay.
Begging themselves they may betray.When wilt thou swim in that live bath,
Each fish, which every channel hath,
Will amorously to thee swim,
Gladder to catch thee, than thou him.If thou, to be so seen, beest loath,
By sun or moon, thou dark'nest both;
And if myself have leave to see,
I need not their light, having thee.Let others freeze with angling reeds,
And cut their legs with shells and weeds,
Or treacherously poor fish beset
With strangling snare, or windowy net.Let course bold hand from slimy nest
The bedded fish in banks out-wrest,
Or curious traitors, sleave-silk flies,
Bewitch poor fishes' wandering eyes. The Bait John Donne
joss stone- tell me what we're going o do now

Joss Stone
Uh huh
It's for the world world world world
Uh

You don't have to make your mind up
I just wanna take my time with you
yeah
If that's alright
it's alright it's alright
Oh forgive me if I get to shy but
maybe you're the reason why
I'm feelin' butterflies
I feel it too
Somethin' bout the look in your eyes
Oooh it just makes me feel so right

Well you're my boy
You're my joy
You're my dream
I'm for ya
I adore your everything that I need
I love how you love me
If I'm made for you

you're made for me
It's too good to be
So tell me what we're gonna do now

Funny how my world keeps spinnin'
sometimes you can be so silly
You know just how to make me laugh
Yeah
You're skin is so lovely
When you touch me
I know that you got my back
Sure do, yes I do
I feel so safe when you hold me
It's like you know me

Well you're my boy
You're my joy
You're my dream
I'm for ya
I adore your everything that I need
I love how you love me
If I'm made for you
you're made for me
It's too good to be
So tell me what we're gonna do no
